Team Quest’s co-founder and owner Matt Lindland was invited to train the defensive tactics instructors for the Oregon State Police in Salem, OR yesterday. The state of the art facility is the main training site for all existing and new recruits for the Oregon State Police. With over 10 different training rooms that would make most college wrestling teams blush, the OSP have an awesome training platform to help keep the officers fit and stay on top of the latest training techniques.
These select group of instructors were lucky to have the Greco-Roman Olympic silver medalist & 12 time UFC veteran for almost 4 hours yesterday, going over specific techniques applicable to controlling and eliminating the threat. The techniques were simple to learn and easy to remember, giving the Oregon State Police defensive tactics instructors a new perspective on the effectiveness of dirty boxing and it’s simplicity. The OSP defensive tactics instructors came from all over the state of Oregon to train with Lindland & sharpen up their existing skills while learning some new ones as well. These 42 instructors are responsible for the defensive tactics training of all the Oregon State Troopers in the entire state.
FitQuest master trainer, Scott McKendry accompanied Lindland to put the OSP through a strength & conditioning workout. The State Troopers were put through a fourteen minute cardio blast of ground & pound, dummy throws, Burroughs resistance sprints and a Bulgarian Bag complex that gave them a realistic evaluation of where their current fitness levels are.
The short workout used specific movements that the Police officers learnt from Lindland in Dirty Boxing to help them develop muscle memory for the techniques and see if they were able to retain the moves while under physical pressure and mental stress.
The OSP defensive instructors were a great group to work with and are a great representation of honor, integrity and courage for the state of Oregon.
Team Quest would like to thank the OSP for the unique opportunity to be able to visit their head quarter facility in Salem and help them in their training.
